Quick Bread Cutlets

With 4 slices of left over bread and boiled potatoes (prepared Aloo parathas yesterday), I prepared quick bread cutlets for our evening tea time snack. Not much of a recipe really, used left overs that I combined with spices, chopped onions and fresh coriander leaves and shallow fried till golden crisp. Fun, fast, healthy and tasty alternate to deep fried snacks. ๐Ÿ™‚

For variation you can add some chopped spinach or mashed green peas or grated carrot.

    nice recipe…is aloo tikki made in the same way? what if cutlets break during frying?
    I guess there is some ingredient mixed to avoid breaking..

    • Sailu

      Here’s Aloo Tikki recipe that is slightly different from this particular recipe, Neha. The cutlets will not break since it has mashed potato and cornflour as binding factors.

        Thank you for your reply…in aloo tikki I suppose aararot is mixed to bind it..adding cornflour is a good idea

    Hi Sailu,
    What to do with leftover fried bread crumbs,
    any ideas ?

    • Sailu

      What do you mean by ‘fried’ bread crumbs, Deepthi?

      • Hari

        The ends of each piece (which some people cut before applying Jam etc.) I presume…

        • Sailu

          If we are talking about the sides of bread, you can dry them and make a fine powder and use as bread crumbs.

    We’ve eaten several recipes from your blog and LOVED them all. Thanks for posting great food. (Tomato paneer, Dal Makhani, the recent Capsicum Paneer)

    Just wanted to say that in the US we call these “potato patties” or “potato cakes.” Great use of leftover mashed potatoes! Egg helps to hold them together well.

    I love bread cutlets but have never thought of using whole wheat bread! This looks so tasty and I get all the health benefits too! Thanks for a quick and easy recipe…

    Wow, they look so great !!!

  • Deepa

    Thank you for all the recipes that you post with great effort. I just made this bread cutlets first by shallow fry and then some more by deep fry. Eitherways, the stuff inside is still soft and does not come out as cutlets we eat outside. Am i doing something wrong or is it how it is meant to be?
    Thank you once again.

    • Sailu

      Its meant to be soft, Deepa. Need to shallow fry over low-medium flame initially and towards the end you can raise the flame a bit for a crunchy crust.

  • Chithra

    Hi, Slow shallow frying seems to be a lot of effort. While am sure it is worth the time, do you think we can bake these cutlets instead? Everything done in one go and healthier too? If yes, how long and what temp should I use? Thanks very much for your response.
